What if we wrote about the problem of community colleges in Connecticut being so close together geographically that they tend to duplicate programs unnecessarily and impinge on each other's turf? Now we have a focus that we can probably write about in a few pages (although more, certainly, could be said) and it would have a good argumentative edge to it. To back up such a thesis statement would require a good deal of work, however, and we might be better off if we limited the discussion to an example of how two particular community colleges tend to work in conflict with each other. It's not a matter of being lazy; it's a matter of limiting our discussion to the work that can be accomplished within a certain number of pages.
Here´s a working thesis with potential: you have highlighted an important aspect of the novel for investigation. However, it´s still not clear what your analysis will reveal. Your reader is intrigued but is still thinking, "So what? What´s the point of this contrast? What does it signify?" Perhaps you are not sure yet, either. That´s fine_begin to work on comparing scenes from the book and see what you discover.
